There’s a new video streaming service coming and it’s for us, by us.
That’s right, UNIFY, a one of a kind content streaming platform is launching Feb. 1, 2016 and boasts the largest collection of African-American centered TV shows, movies and original programming.
According to a 2015 report from Nielsen regarding the reach of video streaming, approximately two in five American homes subscribe to a video streaming service. Streaming services like Netflix and Hulu have dominated in the space, but now UNIFY aims to reach the African-American consumer and with customized program options specifically for that demographic.
“African Americans have made significant contributions to the world of entertainment for nearly three-quarters of a century, and with the launch of UNIFY, viewers can watch all of these trailblazing moments in one place,” said Dr. Donahue Tuitt, CEO and Founder of UNIFY. “No longer do people have to wait for their favorite TV show and movie to come on TV or become available on other video subscription services. Now they can watch their favorite African-American programs anytime they choose.”

With TV shows and movies spanning from the 1960’s to the 2000’s and original documentaries, sitcoms and dramas; UNIFY provides audiences with a variety of programming. For a subscription fee of $5.99 a month, viewers can choose from hundreds of TV shows and movies to watch such as “In Living Color,” “New York Undercover,” “The Flip Wilson Show” and “The Best Man,” among countless others.
UNIFY’s first original series is a 24-episode docu-series celebrating the 75 year journey of Blacks on television. With the first four episodes now available on UNIFYME.TV, “The Legacy: Celebrating 75 Years of Black on Television” looks at how Black images on television have had an impact on the Black community and America as a whole.
Customers can pre-subscribe for UNIFY now and in preparation for the service’s official launch. As a bonus, those who sign up for a one-year subscription before Feb. 1 will receive an additional three months free.
